  • [01] Health minister at Economist conference

    Health Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos, addressing the Economist's conference on Monday, said that the pricing of pharmaceuticals in Greece will gradually pass on to the Health ministry. The pricing of pharmaceuticals has been carried out by the Development ministry so far.

    The Health minister further said that the issue was not one of persons but of government policies and that it was something that should have been done long ago. He also referred to backing for the National Pharmaceuticals Organisation and to emphasis that will be placed in the coming years on the sector of pharmaceutical research in the country.

    Avramopoulos revealed that over the first six months that the new law on prucurements has been in force, through tendering, 50 million euros have been saved and the target is to have a total of 500 million euros saved from procurements to public hospitals.
